283,000 miles - are you kidding me?!?!
By Cagman10 on


1997 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Laramie SLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD LB


When I bought this truck new, I never thought I would have it for so long. Hey, life happens and I still have the truck after 283,000 miles, a load of In 'N Out Burger droppings, and a hell of a lot of work. Tranny is a bit rough on cold winter mornings but I have no real complaints ... except, who would ever design a radio that is right under the cup holder? Hello?!?!? Ever hear of spilled coffee -- radio shorted out after four years. I will cry like when I was a kid watching Old Yeller when I have to put her down.

Best Features

I can pull houses off foundations.

Worst Features

Move the cup holder -- increase the size of the front brake calipers and rotors. My wife's Audi has bigger front brakes.
